He should go to jail and pay for what he did. The fact that he is an officer should not be a free pass for him to get a slap on the wrist!
Heck, he didn't even get a slap on the wrist!! The stupid Chief AND the mayor BOTH seem to think it is ok what this moron did!!! Well, it is NOT and they ALL should be charged and taken out of their positions!!!
Really hope to this this followed up, should remind the Mayor that the world is watching. Stand up a be a man and show that real men don't shoot tiny little defenceless kittens
remember these excuses for humans when election times come
This Ass needs to pay a hefty fine/lose his position/job over this action! Anyone else that would do that would be serving time and paying hefty fines, why should he get away with this?
Absolutely . .
Good for the Ohio SPCA and their attorney! I hope they can save other animals from such brutal killings. Poor little kittens.
But why didn't the homeowner call the SPCA first?!! I am in no way condoning what the officer did, but the homeowner has responsibility too. She could have trapped and altered the cats, or called a rescue herself for assistance in trapping the cats. She was perfectly fine with them being killed for lack of space in the shelter ... I'm not okay with that attitude.
Good point, but I wonder if she knew they were going to be shot in front her children. I'm a believer in TNR. I don't agree with the mother either if she knew they were going to be killed...one way or they other.
I'm a believer in TNR too, Lisa ... one of the articles I read says that the mother knew the kittens would be killed and was OKAY with them being murdered. I regret any trauma to the children ... and in no way condone what the officer chose to do. I don't agree with just murdering kittens; at least they deserved a couple calls to local rescues to see if space elsewhere existed. Everyone ... this is why spaying and neutering our pet population is so important!
What a bitch! How could she be so evil. It would have been easy to capture the kittens or or put an add inthe paper for them.
This is nothing but animal cruelty.
That so called mayor and his force should step down from their positions now seeing thst this has been going on way to long and no one has done anything to getthe humane society involved in this..all those animals in the past that have been murdered that were innocent looking for a good human to take them in as family and keep them safe..law enforcement needs training in animal compassion and just because the shelters are full is no reason to kill them ..the shelters should be calling in...

Well said, Nancy. Kudos, Girl . .
Even then there was no reason to kill them, the lady was currently watching over them. Why kill homeless animals anyways? It's not like we have people imprisoning or killing hobos even though they're all over the streets too. If people would simply get the strays neutered then set them free thats all that would be needed. Murdering them is going too far.
Its shocking and morally reprehensible for police to be shooting cats and then even more despicable having the Chief to say that it was "cool"! What planet are these people living on? This case has is so sickening, traumatic and gruesome to these poor cats, how can these people stay in law enforcement? These are the actions of psychopaths not normal humans. These police officers need to be seen by a psychiatric because this is not normal rational behaviour!
this officer is out of his mind, he not only should be fires but prosecuted as well.
Everyone must understand that animals are also "Human" like us.
